Corruption Probe - Anchor
(2008-07-11)
(wgvu) - A Detroit television morning news anchor linked to a $47 million sludge recycling deal under federal investigation is no longer employed by the station.

WJBK-TV says Fanchon Stinger no longer works for Fox 2 News.

Phone and e-mail messages seeking comment were left after business hours last night by the Associated Press with Stinger's
attorney, Henry Baskin.

Stinger had been on paid administrative leave while the station looked into her dealings with the contract between the Detroit City Council and Synagro Technologies.

A Synagro spokeperson says a consulting firm created by Stinger had done advertising work for the Houston-based waste hauler.

Authorities are investigating the city council-approved sludge recycling deal for possible wrongdoing.
